We'll never quite know what Belichek is going to do with his backfield until he actually does it. Right now, it looks like Gillislee will take over Blount's role, but some experts believe it may be Burkhead. If it is, he could be in for double-digit touchdowns and you are getting that for a dime. Seems like a lottery ticket on him may be worth it.

Rex Burkhead being used in short yardage situations

CSN New England's Mike Giardi reports the Patriots "haven't been shy" about getting Rex Burkhead reps in short-yardage and goal-line situations.

Fantasy Impact

Burkhead is known more for his pass catching abilities but if he can get into the short yardage situations it could give his fantasy value a big boost. Right now it is too hard to tell who is going to get the most work out of the crowded Patriots backfield and fantasy owners should wait to see how things play out.
